Inter Milan CEO Marco Fassone believes his side’s Europa League last 32 tie against Celtic will be a classic meeting of two traditional European giants.
Inter will travel to Scotland for the first leg of their round of 32 tie of the Europa League before hosting the Scottish champions at the San Siro a week later.
The most famous meeting of the two sides took place in the 1967 European Cup final in Lisbon, where Celtic came out on top 2-1.
Fassone is excited about the tie and believes it is a classic European meeting of two clubs who are rich in history and tradition.
He added that both Celtic and Inter are traditional European giants and believes the tie will have a lot to offer once the two sides clash in February.
“It is certainly a classic”, the Inter Milan CEO was quoted as saying by the BBC.
“All Inter fans remember the European Cup final with the glorious team of the 1960s.
“It is a fantastic tie – there are great emotions about playing at Celtic Park. It will be fantastic.
“Both clubs have a strong history – both teams are well known not only domestically, but also internationally.”
The two legs will be played on 19th and 26th February 2015.
